My Review

How to explain this book. If I need to say a sentence about the book, I would say that this is a monologue of Radha. But there is more into it.

Radha is talking to Krishna. Moreover Radha is spreading love everywhere. Radha tells Krishna that even if she hates milk, she makes butter everyday because she loves him that much. She wonders if Krishnas life as a God is boring. She is mesmerized by her lover who had never been with her but still remained inside her always. She wails that the world calls Radha and Krishna as RadhaKrishna to avoid every distance between them but she still don't have him by his side. There is more to the book than mere romantic utterances of a woman in the throes of love. 

Since Radha and her love is immortal, authoress imagine her to be living in this millennia. She is the representative of the woman who I'd judged, exploited and trodden. Some poems point to the current scenario in the words of Radha.Many poems are the continuations of the previous ones.

The book speaks about eternal love that never changes after years, decades and centuries.

This review is in return of a free book from the publisher
